What is the Creation Space?

The La Crosse Public Library Creation Space provides an opportunity for the community to create, invent and collaborate together.  Drop in during open lab to get a brief software overview and find out how we can help with your project.  After training, you can use a 3D printer, sewing machine, desktop cutter, heat press, production room equipment and your creativity.  Or feel free to bring in your current work in progress and create in camaraderie with other makers!
